George Zimmerman emerged from hiding to help rescue a man and his family in an overturned truck after a crash Thursday, turning Zimmerman from pariah to hero.

Sanford Police Capt. Jim McAuliffe told ABC News that Zimmerman “pulled an individual from a truck that had rolled over” at a Florida intersection less than a mile from where he shot Trayvon Martin.

Zimmerman, a former Neighborhood Watch volunteer who maintained he was acting in self-defense when he killed the black teen, has been in hiding since his acquittal of murder and manslaughter charges.

The crash occurred at the intersection of Interstate 4 and Route 417. A family of four — two parents and two children — were reportedly trapped inside a blue Ford Explorer SUV, said ABC News. Zimmerman was one of two men who came to the rescue.

“George Zimmerman pulled me out,” the unidentified driver told firefighters, according to a report on FoxNews.com.

Social networking sites were hopping over the latest developments.

“Pffft…well obviously he pulled the man out from under the truck to racially profile him…” @PatDollard wrote on Twitter.

“Hope it was a #Trayvon supporter,” tweeted @survivecollapse.

“Gotta tell you (& I’m just being honest here) not sure I’d have the guts to pull someone out of an overturned burning vehicle,” tweeted @RedBrightandTru.

“He just can’t mind his own business,” tweeted @Oenonewept.
